Not1MM is a new contest logger for Linux that is written in Python. It is currently in beta release, but it already has a number of features that make it a promising option for contest loggers.

One of the things that sets Not1MM apart from other contest loggers is its focus on customization. Users can create their own plugins to add new features or to customize the logger to their own specific needs.
